Anniversary Sale Spotlight – Favorites!

This week I thought I’d share some of my favorite yarns from the Anniversary Sale this year. I knit and crochet but these yarns are versatile enough to be perfect for both and they all make great stash yarns for future, unknown projects!

I love a good one skein project and Frosted Leaves from Louisa harding is just that! A simple, repeating leaf motif with a garter stitch border that shows off the stunning self-striping colors of Amitola Grande, this pattern is one I keep in the last minute gifts folder. Not only is it a free pattern but the yarn is a heavy worsted weight and one skein completes the project. During the sale that means this whole project only costs you $17.49! Amitola Grande is a single ply yarn with a blend of 80% wool and 20% silk, you get warm fluffyness from the wool and strength and shine from the silk, and there are some gorgeous colorways here.

I’ve made several projects with yarns from Mrs. Crosby and Train Case is one of the best.  A blend of  superwash merino, nylon and Outlast – that futuristic rayon fiber technology that continuously interacts with your body to moderate your temperature and keep you from being too hot or too cold. The future is here! not only that but it’s machine washable. The hand dyed colors of this yarn are just stunning and sometimes you really need to just let them take center stage. And sometimes you need a project that has lots of visual interest when finished but doesn’t take a lot of brain power in the making, I can’t keep track of a complicated project and pay attention at my daughter’s softball game! The Color Affection Shawl is just the right fit, lots of easy-peasy garter stitch and simple stripes to keep you going without too much effort, and the result is a stunning shawl!

The Jo Sharp yarns are just some of the classiest yarns I have in my stash. Silk Road DK Tweed is an incredible blend of 85% wool, 10% silk, and 5%cashmere in earthy, organic tones with pops of tweedy color. The two-ply structure and fiber blend knit up into a fabric with a beautiful hand and great drape but it still has a good amount of body. I love this yarn for garments. I am also a big fan of versatile patterns and the Wide Collar Vest and Cardigan pattern is just that. Take your pick of a cropped cardigan or a longer vest, both with generous lapels. The vest seems like the kind of layering piece that I would wear a lot! Loose and casual with a tshirt and jeans around the house, or more tailored and belted with dress pants and a button down shirt for the office.

Finally, Berroco Ultra Alpaca is one of the first yarns that I stashed and I keep finding ways to use it, it’s just that good. With over 40 incredible colors, in soft heathered solids from striking jewel tones to classic neutrals, there’s color for almost every project you can imaging.  The Avocet B sweater, a free PDF, is one that’s been in my queue for a long time and this might just be the right time to cast on. An incredible comfy cardigan in all-over garter stitch, I might just live in this one!

So there you have 4 of my favorite yarns from the May portion of our Anniversary Sale. What are some of your favorites and what plans are you hatching for them?

Anniversary Spotlight: Color and Texture

Our Anniversary Sale isn’t just for knitters looking to stock up on stash-building workhorse yarns! Each year we have quite a selection of unique yarns that are perfect for garments and accessories with incredible texture and color, and these yarns are often an excellent addition to the weavers stash.

Tempo from Filatura Di Crosa works up into wide stripes of color, but these stripes are no plain-jane solid colors! The yarn is made from 3 plys, one is a two-ply, multicolored print with nubby tweedy bits, wrapped with two different colored thick-thin plys that gradually change color. While that seems like a lot happening in one yarn it results in a muted blending of colors that give your knits a sophisticated yet rustic quality. And, it’s a cotton blend so it’s perfect for warmer weather! Working with 2 colors of Tempo, and creating wedges with short rows, the Boticelli Top is an interesting but not overly complicated pullover to knit. Interchangeable front and back are seamed at the sides and shoulders for a reversible top that is eye catching and comfortable.

Another great cotton yarn for summer is Schachenmayr Tahiti. This fingering weight yarn has beautiful color shifts in variegated shades and it’s totally machine washable! Just 4 balls of this yarn knit into the gorgeous Sundowner Shawl. The pattern is FREE and you can choose from two sizes. This yarn would also make a beautiful warp yarn for a shawl or scarf with a gradient effect!

With subtle, tonal colors and a shifting series of fibers, the chainette or woven tape-like construction of Classic Elite Yarns Sanibel lends textural interest to even the simplest stockinette pieces. The Lady Londonderry capelet is a lovely layering piece for when it’s not quite warm enough to wear your favorite summer dresses but you just can’t wait! Worked from the bottom up in a classic feather and fan stitch, this little piece features a wide rib neckline and a button closure for a fun retro look.

Also from Classic Elite is Santorini, the same base yarn as Sanibel but in a cheerful array of variegated colors. Put the two together for fun accessories with tons of colorful drama. Nonamesset scarf does just that with modular knit triangles that are joined as you go!

And don’t forget that I mentioned the weavers! These yarns create beautiful texture and color in your weaving. Here you can see we’ve used them as weft yarns paired with a simple warp of Juniper Moon Farms Zooey, a gorgeous linen blend.

Anniversary Sale Spotlight – Bulky Yarns

May is a great time to stock up on yarns for future holiday gifts. I know, I know! It’s not even summer yet and I’m raising the spectre of holiday knitting. Some of you will think I’m crazy but I actually like to get lots of quick and easy projects done in the summertime to fill the “bin of potential gifts”. This is a little storage bin where I place finished knit and crochet items that don’t have a particular recipient yet, maybe one of my girls’ teachers, or my husband’s boss, or the secret snowflake exchange at work. I get lots of little things done over the summer and then I always have an extra gift or two come holiday time! This year I am particularly enamoured of bulky and chunky yarns, and there are SO many great ones to choose from in the May portion of our Anniversary Sale!

Anniversary Sale yarns and quick summer gift knits on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

Encore Mega, is a super versatile yarn  in 25 colors that is perfect for the person in your life who needs an easy care gift. With a blend of 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool you don’t have to worry about them felting that special gift! The Lodge Pole Cowl is not only a quick, yet interesting pattern, but it’s Free! Double strand your yarn for a super squishy and cozy cowl, keep it all in one color or use 2 colors for a marled look, and the 4 skeins of Encore Mega that you need will only cost $16.76 during the sale!

A yarn with fantastic texture and beautiful colors is Bamboo Bloom Handpaints. This blend of bamboo based Rayon, Wool, and Acrylic has a thick and thin texture with large slubs of fluffy wool and sections of tightly spun rayon with incredible shine. Finished knits have amazing texture, like the Corners Scarf, another FREE pattern. At less than $8 per hank for Bamboo Bloom Handpaints during the sale, you could make a whole pile of these one skein scarves and still have plenty of cash left in your holiday budget!

Another yarn with great texture is Rosa from Tahki Yarns. This 100% Cotton yarn is fantastic for summertime garments and accessories. Right now I’m kind of crushing on the Textures Cardigan by Rosemary Drysdale. My daughter loves a good summer dress and would happily wear them in December, so a little cotton cardi is perfect for letting her fashion sense rule while making me feel better about her staying warm! With Rosa being a bulky yarn this sweater will knit up super quick, and during the sale it costs less than I would have paid for one at her favorite department store.

So what do you have planned for your “bin of potential gifts”? Give some of these great bulky yarns a try and help to fill it up over the summer!

Anniversary Sale Spotlight – April Favorites

The April portion of our Anniversary Sale is winding down and these yarns will be back to full price on Sunday morning. Don’t miss your chance to snap up some incredible deals! I thought I’d share 3 of my favorite yarns from this part of the sale, and the projects I might be stashing them for (wink, wink).

eco wool

Cascade Eco Wool. When they were younger my kids used to call these my yarn babies, because they are absolutely huge skeins! 478 yds, of a bulky weight, gorgeously lofty Peruvian wool in the earthy, natural colors of the wool itself, this yarn is fantastic for warm and cozy sweaters and as a beautifully neutral backdrop for blankets. The Pop Blanket from Tin Can Knits is the perfect example. Shown here with Noro Kureyon as the bright center circles, this could easily be a scrap busting pattern with the Eco Wool gloriously framing those bits and bobs of yarn you just couldn’t let go of. Think of it as a memory quilt, here are little framed bits of yarns you loved to work with, and for projects like that the frame can be just as important!

alpaca sox

Classic Elite Alpaca Sox. I remember making a pair of socks as a store sample in this yarn when it first arrived. I did not want to give them back! The yarn felt amazing in my hands as it glided across my needles and the finished fabric was soft and cozy. While it makes amazing socks this yarn also knits up into beautiful shawls and lightweight but warm accessories! The Wavelength Shawl features a center panel of stunning lace bordered by easy-peasy garter stitch, with a delicate lace border. This is a great project to cut your teeth on lace! The lace panel is isolated in the middle of the shawl giving your brain and hands lots of time to relax in the garter stitch sections.

silk garden sock

Noro Silk Garden Sock. A perennial favorite, this yarn glows with all the amazing color changes that Noro has become famous for, and at the lighter sock weight it becomes the perfect choice for lightweight accessories with tons of color impact! For knitters the Mitered Wrap showcases those color changes in the meandering corners of a wrap that will result in  oohs and aahs everywhere you go.  And crocheters can experience equal public curiosity and excitement with Linda Permann’s Circles Scarf. While this may look like a pile of tiny yo-yo’s that have been joined together after being made, Linda actually has a genius way of making these as you go along – only two ends to weave in!

knitters pride

And don’t forget your tools! We have some pretty spectacular hooks and needles in the sale and you’ll want to grab a set. The Knitter’s Pride Dreamz line of needles and hooks feature a different color of laminated birchwood for each different size, making it easy to see which size is which at a glance! The Deluxe Interchangeable Needle Set includes 9 pairs of 4.5″ tips from US sizes= 4, 5 – 11, 4 cables (one 24″, two 32″, and one 40″), a case to hold your cables, 8 end caps, 4 cable keys, and a set of needle size ID tags, all organized in a clear vinyl case. And the Dreamz Interchangeable Tunisian Hook Set  includes US sizes E – L,  4 cables (one 24″, two 32″, and one 40″), 8 end caps, 4 cable keys, a clear vinyl case and tunisian hook connectors to join two hooks together.
